The stunning and ancient village of Lourmarin is an easy 20-minute stroll away - close enough to hear the charming church bells which ring on the hour. Visitors love to linger at one of the many cafes or fetch a freshly baked croissant and bread each morning. Lourmarin is also a magnet for artists, writers and musicians. Indeed, Albert Camus made it his home. There are many art galleries and boutiques and throughout the summer, the ancient chateau hosts numerous concerts. The lively Friday market is simply joyful and when you tire of the shopping you can slip off to a café to sip a glass of rosé while listening to a jazz band on the market square.
